Recently, as I was doing a series of DMCA takedown notices and landed on the site for Limestone Networks, a Web host specializing in dedicated servers and higher-end hosting packages.
However, when I looked at their Terms of Service, I noticed something unusual. Under their DMCA policy, the company laid out financial fines and penalties for those who were the subject of a DMCA notice but failed to respond.
According to the policy, a customer who is notified via a ticket of a DMCA notice and does not resolve the situation or respond in 48 hours will have their connection cut off at the IP address level and may be assessed a $25 fine. After 72 hours the service is suspended and, after seven days of being suspended without a resolution, the account will be cancelled and the client may be hit with a $200 Abuse Charge. All data will be destroyed after the cancellation date.
